Abstract
A HYPERGOLIC FUEL INJECTOR IS DESCRIBED THAT ENABLES MULTIFUEL OPERATION, LOWER FUEL CONSUMPTION, AND ENHANCED ALL WEATHER STARTING FOR INTERNAL COMBUSTION ENGINES. THE DEVICE EMPLOYS A NOVEL DUAL FUNCTION HIGH PRESSURE PUMP PERMITTING THE TRANSPORT OF HEATED FUEL IN A FUEL INJECTOR SUITABLE FOR USE IN SUCH ENGINES. HIGH TEMPERTURE AND VERY HIGH PRESSURE FUEL IS DELIVERED TO THE COMBUSTION SPACE OF SUCH ENGINES WHERE SELF IGNITION OF THE FUEL OCCURS RESULTING IN IMPROVED COMBUSTION AND GREATER FLEXIBILITY IN ENGINE OPERATION AND CHOICE OF FUEL STOCKS. THE DEVICE IS SUITABLE FOR USE IN DIESEL, GAS TURBINE, AND SPARK IGNITION ENGINES. ENGINES SO EQUIPPED TO USE MULTIPLE FUELS WILL NOT BE LIMITED TO USE ONLY THOSE SPECIALIZED FUELS NOW DESIGNATED FOR USE IN THE VARIOUS TYPES, SUCH AS GASOLINE, DIESEL, AND JET FUELS. USE OF THE DEVICE WILL INCREASE PERFORMANCE AND LOWER THE EMITTED REGULATED AIR POLLUTANT EMISSIONS BELOW CURRENT ACHIEVED LEVELS. OTHER SIGNIFICANT BENEFITS ARE DESCRIBED.
